This was primarily owed to the dull demands of the consuming sectors. However, the market witnessed some glimmer of hope in the fourth quarter as the prices began to incline marginally again. Demands were still not ideal, but the trade disturbances caused some serious supply curtailments, causing the market to rise.

Analyst Insight

According to Procurement Resource, the phenthoate market will continue to oscillate in the same manner in the coming months; the market drivers are not projecting much change.

Phenthoate Price Trend for the First Half of 2023

The agrochemical industry struggled throughout the first half of 2023. Quarter one started slow, with heavily packed inventories and low feedstock costs. The opening of Chinese industries post-lockdown had stakeholders hopeful for good business. However, limited to no offtakes from the downstream industries forced the suppliers to cut down on prices in order to mobilize the inventory stocks, and prices for agrochemicals, including phenthoate, started plunging with decreased revenue for suppliers.

As Q2 arrived, unseasonal weather conditions, especially delayed monsoons in some regions, hurdled the market. Feedstock prices were already low, and the inventories were high. As all the interrelated activities with the agrochemical industry took a backseat, there were almost no demands registered in this period. All these factors kept pushing the market down. With such riddled circumstances, very dull and muted price trend for phenthoate were observed throughout the said period.

Analyst Insight

According to the Procurement Resource, phenthoate prices are expected to remain fluctuating in the upcoming months as the factors around the agrochemical industry are all still gloomy, and demand projections do not look very positive.
